    Sometimes aggressive base running is good, even if you are thrown out. Like when it draws a throw and helps a run score.

    That base running mistake by Cozart, however, is unexplainable.

    A strict manager would just remove Cozart from the game right now.

    It makes the exact same amount of sense as the designated hitter.

    Yes. For that play, I would remove Cozart and put in Izturis. Right now, while Bud Black is talking.

    I mentioned this the other day. I'm 31 years old. This may be the worst Reds baserunning team in my lifetime.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    I guess Yonder is still pissed at us for trading him.

    Reds interested in James Russell according to MLBTR.

    The mid 2000-teams do not count because they were actually base-walking, or sometimes riding a Rascal scooter from base to base.

    Are you allowed to say that or will you get a warning? I don't care at all that you said it but wondered if you get warned.

    Or trotting around the bases after hitting a home run with an 8-5 deficit.

    I'm a lot older and I don't disagree. But some of these mistakes are understandable. A guy tries for an extra base and doesn't quite make it, for example.

    That mistake by Cozart is just unacceptable. Reds would have had two men on, one out. Chance for a bigger inning.

    Jocketty needs to make some changes by next year. And it's not the bench.
